Great photo Vince! Like how it captures elements of the work itself, the monks and the process involved.
I was really impressed with what I can only describe as a casual kind of concentration -"this is what we do - now" - workmanlike and crafted but devoid of egoistic need to create a "masterpiece." I also get the same sensation when listening to Bach, especially the cantatas, which were each composed for a specific religious event, only intended to be played once. Fortunately, many of the written manuscripts were saved and we can still enjoy and reflect on those wonderful spiritual works today. Equally fortunate, the monks destroy theirs, giving rise to a different kind of powerful relfection and enjoyment.
